This is the worst school ever. hard to get a job when you graduated st school ever. they don't care about the students, just your money. they are not accredited even though they said they were. they are four times more expensive thatn the other school in the area. skip it at all course. there is an administrator there called ms. folkers or something like that and she is a true sadist. a very sick individual.never, never waste your moeny here. THEY ARE NOT ACCREDITED!!!!!!!!! nobody will hire you!!!!!! not other school will take their credits!!!!!!!
I have been enrolled at Fortis College for two years; I am now at the end of the program. I used to work in the nursing field back home, but when I came here, in this Big Country where the language is different, the laws are strict, and multiple cultures are interacting, I realized that I had to go back to School in order to be able to adapt and continue practicing my Profession. I was looking for a School that could help me carry out my goals and I found Fortis College that is located at 3 minutes from my house. So far, I can say that this School fit my needs. Not only it implements a tough program which can prepare the students for a successful career, but the people who compose the staff are also very nice and responsible. I have wonderful experiences with them, especially Dr. Lisa Evoy (the Dean of Nursing). While I am at the school as student, I am also a mother of two small kids and I work full time (40 hours, five days a week). I am so busy that I feel overwhelmed sometimes and asking if I will survivre; however, the Dean is always there to encourage me to go foward, she always shows understanding when I go talk to her. She is very supportive and she often tries her best to satisfy student requests. I recommend Fortis College, my School, to anyone who wants to become a professional in the nursing field.
The worst experience I have ever encountered. The most unorganized program you can imagine. Half the time we did not have an instructor, then when we did they would quit in the middle of our semester! Our pediatric clinicals were held at a daycare! I completed a whole semester only to be told that technically I should not have been allowed to progress to the second semester or third because I had received a 74% instead of 78% in anatomy in the FIRST semester!! I had written a letter of extenuating circumstances due to my fathers death and my mothers diagnosis of pancreatic cancer during the first semester and the DEAN of the NURSING program stated to me..Life happens and you should have dropped out of nursing school when your father died..., wow, not the kind of an example a DEAN of NURSING should be setting, and not the kind of one I want to follow. She dismissed me from the program, which was fine, would be embarrassed to have a degree from that school!!
This school is not worth anybody's time that actually wants to go into nursing. They are money hungry and are always finding ways of kicking out students for stupid reasons. My experience there has been horrible and I would never recommend anyone to go there. It is a sad excuse as a school. Even when you drop out they want you to pay more money for whatever reason and they do not let you know what the reasons are for the payment that is due.
Horrible, every part of this experience was horrible. I had one great English teacher, she was amazing. Other than that, this was the worst experience of my life. I can't believe this campus hasn't closed down by now (Indianapolis).
